    Hi,

    I recently installed www/shellinabox version 2.10 on my home server. How can I upgrade the port to the newest version (2.14)? I was going to just build the 2.14 release and install it, but I thought that might mess something up since I have 2.10 installed already.

    Should I deinstall 2.10? Should I somehow merge the 2.14 source into the ports tree?

    I just want to make sure I still have all the proper startup scripts, and that I'm not breaking anything by using a non-FreeBSD specific port.

    Thank you for your time.

    You're going to have to wait until the port gets updated.

    Or, you can try and port it yourself and submit the patches.
     
    BLuFeNiX thanks for this.

    Alright, thanks. I might try that if I have nothing else better to do today.
